Perseus

Don't dangle those keys in front of my face

and then go walking out my door

behold that hero

standing firm

the slayer of evil incarnate

rippling tides of limelight 

when the sun set early

I cannot remember to do anything

it blends into one

what can I have done.

As you ride like your life depends on it

and it sit there

harder and straighter than the Great fire of London monument

sweating bullets

skin of lead

your juicy pink apricot haven

sweet tangy melons

bitter after taste

oh ja, das ist sehr gut!

Good Morning

Good morning followers, humans, earth dwellers, bee biters, cow sucklers and coffee and tea lovers!

I’m up early today. I woke up at 4:30am because last night I decided to suddenly fall asleep around 8pm. I didn’t get up at 4:30am, I simply lay there fading in and out of consciousness until 6:30 when I decided to get ready for the day.

I think I have been struggling with depression as I cannot fathom going back onto my university campus. I’ve not been there for over a month. Granted we had the break over new year, but still… I think at this point the work from home is a mask to my anxiety. I did manage to produce a sort of skeleton argument for the crown court trial though… an application to adduce evidence of bad character. I am prosecuting at 5pm today. I think the fee is £350. It is all a pipe dream though. I do like the law and would like to pass this course, I am putting my faith in God to help me. Maybe I am not smart enough for this. Yeah I got a degree but what does that mean, really?

Back to the day ahead. Since the crown court virtual trial is 5pm, I have plenty of time to do other things. I am still waiting for a few deliveries. My frogs I paid for couldn’t arrive last week since too cold to ship apparently. It is colder here now then last week. I wish they would just ship them, come on already! The tank is ready for them regardless. I did receive some more stuff for it yesterday, including springtails and a big bit of wood. Surprisingly the humidity is better with the wood in there. I also have a drainage layer which will aid that. It doesn’t tend to drop below 60%. Since there is no froglets in there yet, I would estimate that as OKAY.

^^**UPDATE**^^ Shop called me at 10am to confirm froglets will be shipped to arrive Thursday! This is excellent news, still colder here than last week though. Fruit flies arrived yesterday which will be the food source, I already have some crickets. Froglets are only 5cm, this tank will be huge for the pair of them! I also updated the tank… see below:-

I added the wood and wine and fake plant which is stuck to the side of the glass with a suction cup. humidity at 80%, temperatures at the moment at 23 Celsius, usually around 25, but I had window open a bit this morning.

Okay. Here I go. I have not had breakfast yet and am cautious to fast again since last time, I ended up ill requiring antibiotics. I would ideally like something plain Jane for breakfast, maybe some croissant with yoghurt. I also went back to the Harappa restaurant on Sunday, I went even spicier with a Nepali dish which both blew my mind and made me grateful I had gone back. For breakfast I am going to make some pasta, which has been my dinner for the last week, a new diet. I am still vegan remember. Perhaps having pasta for breakfast is good? I will add avocado to it and some thick juicy pasta sauce, tomato and garlic. I also started to add this Sacla vegan basil pesto, which is tasty. I wasn’t sure how to ‘cook’ it so after draining the pasta, I add the pasta back to the pan with about a teaspoon of the pesto, along with the pasta sauce. This actually works to bring the flavour out, although I think I may need to add more.

What time do you usually get up?

Do you usually have breakfast?

Do you usually have a shower in the morning?

To the last question; no I do not. I haven’t had a shower in the morning for a long time, barr this recent time in the last 4 months which I do not care for. I do think shower the night before it better, because in the morning we want our natural oils and skin protection intact to protect us from both that morning dew and sun.

I want you all to be happy. Peace.

The Rock : Movie Review!

I thought I had reviewed this classic action movie from the 90s! I am now reviewing it!

Where the heck do I begin with another all time favourite of mine. I absolutely love The Rock, along with Face/Off and Con Air! All 90s action movies starring Nicolas Cage. I recently re-watched them all as they have all just been added to Amazon Prime! $%@& me!

“Hugely improbable and hugely entertaining action thriller about a mild-mannered scientist (Nicolas Cage) and a hardened ex-con (Sean Connery) who join Navy SEALs in an attempt to retake Alcatraz from terrorists.”

Release date: 1996 (United States)

Director: Michael Bay

Gross revenue: $335.10 million

Run time: 2 hours 16 minutes (finished about 2 hours 5 minutes)

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Sean Connery, Ed Harris

A blockbuster movie set in the heart of San Francisco on the infamous ex prison island Alcatraz. The Rock is one of the most well known movies to be set on this island, and the movie and the plot, the acting, action scenes and generally overall theme including music, lighting, tension and drama are enough to make this one of the greatest movies of all time. The other movie set on Alcatraz which I really find amazing is the Clint Eastwood movie Escape from Alcatraz. (https://www.fbi.gov/history/famous-cases/alcatraz-escape).

Let us begin. We are introduce immediately to a rogue unit of military men who are seemingly breaking into a secure facility and stealing some potent vx poison gas rockets. They are doing this so that they can get some type of compensation for the fallen men of the military who have gone without a proper military burial and whose families have been left with nothing. This is quite true and unfortunately is still happening, the sad reality is that many courageous men, women and young people are giving their lives for their countries and are being disgraced by a government who won’t acknowledge them. This film takes that to the extreme, although cases of rogue soldiers and hostage situations are real and are happening as we speak.

Enter Stanley Goodspeed (an FBI chemical weapons specialist with a love of the Beatles and other classic music, note a reference to Elton John’s Rocket Man later on toward the end of the movie). He has been prepping for this moment throughout his career, and is thrust from the lab to the frontline by the FBI and the USA government to assist a cutting edge marine core unit who are assigned with entering Alcatraz, and disabling the vx poison gas rockets. Little does he know that the FBI is also seeking the help of John Patrick Mason (Sean Connery), an ex Alcatraz inmate who previously escaped and knows the ins and outs of the island and is therefore the best person to assist the team. Mason has a history of being trained by British intelligence and knows a shed load of state secrets, and was held without trial for most of his life until he gave up intelligence that he had.

Goodspeed (God Speed) is soon getting acquainted with Mason in San Francisco as he is being lied to in order to assist the FBI. All the while Frank Hummel is leading the rogue soldiers on Alcatraz with Tom Baxter and giving the government 17 hours to pay up. Mason is cleaned up in a nice hotel and I must say this is the start of one hell of a big action sequence involving a car chase. Mason escapes said hotel after distracting the FBI agents by ordering room service (LOL) and is soon hijacking a Hummer and flooring it across that all so famous San Francisco landscape. Stanley Goodspeed, out of some kind of responsibility to do the right thing, and being aware of the serious threat from Alcatraz and the poison, is soon pursuing Mason in a yellow Ferrari. It’s literally all down hill and carnage and mayhem ensue as the FBI and police are in hot pursuit. They can’t exactly arrest Mason since they requested his help in the first place!

Mason ends up evading the law for a brief while to visit his daughter. Goodspeed however is still following and informs them of the location. I guess we can imagine how hard Mason had it being locked up away from his daughter for years, and Goodspeed does the honorable thing when the law turns up and tells Mason’s daugther that he is assisting with an important FBI matter. It’s got the humour in this movie that I love, as soon as Mason’s daughter has gone, Goodspeed is soon grilling Mason on his pain from the car chase.

It’s time for the team to start moving into Alcatraz. Informed of the mission. Mason soon learns Goodspeed is in fact a chemical weapons expert and remarks that he was lying about being a field agent, and that he shouldn’t get them fucking killed. Good writing. It’s an underwater start to enter the island. With an ex con to guide the team and Goodspeed to assist, things go wrong fairly quick. The rogue militants on the island have booby trapped every entrance and after triggering a sphere alarm system, whist trying to enter the bathroom/shower room of the island, the elite navy seal team are now at the mercy of the mercenaries. It’s a brutal massacre of every member of the team except Mason and Goodspeed, and from that point on, there is a cat and mouse pursuit and Hummel knows of their presence, yet cannot find them.

It is only when Mason tries to leave that Goodspeed is forced to explain the situation to Mason. Disappointed with the news and fearful for his daughter, Mason, maybe out of a some sort of moral righteousness, decides to stay and help. Given that it is over 2km back to shore, realistically how could he get back without being caught? Things are tense, things are dark and wet and the duo, although chalk and cheese, do make a good team. Acting is great and the pair have a chemistry that I found echoed that in Cages other movies like Con Air and Face/Off. It is not often that such pairings are found in modern movies, save for The Fast and the Furious. Although The Rock in an action movie, it is I believe about working together and forming friends for the greater good. So although they may not like each other, and this is evident to an extent, the two have to work together to defeat a threat greater than themselves. Without this cooperation, neither could survive.

Although the marines are determined to kill the innocent citizens of the city and are holding 81 hostages, they have a plan, and they expect that plan to be executed. So, when Mason and Goodspeed interrupt this plan, it starts to reveal cracks in General Hummels moral mindset. Mason understands that such a man would not kill the innocent, but Goodspeed is unsure. The marines themselves have doubts. Soon the pair are killing off the marines, derailing the plan and having an awesome shoot out in some old mine in the belly of Alcatraz. The vx gas rockets guidance chips are being destroyed and Hummel, short on time, is pressure to fire. He decides to launch, and at the last moment stops the rocket confirming that Mason was right about him. This leaves one rocket left, and plenty of crazy marines. It is also the time when Mason and Goodspeed witness the general being killed by his men as they attempt to overthrow him.

Left with no choice, the remaining marines are determined to launch the final rocket and our duo heroes are still battling to stop the rocket. Unfortunately due to the previous vx poison gas rocket launch, the president has now authorised a bombing strike on the island. Cage is fighting to disarm the rocket and counting down to the moment the jets are dropping bomb on him, it is pure anxiety. We want the hero to succeed and we want the world to be safer.

Cage disarms the rocket, and is blown into the water, Mason saves him. This is our ending, an unlikely pair who happen to save 81 hostages, after what seems to be a massive glorious action movie. All of this takes place within an hour in movie time, yet it feels like more, this is clever movie making. The crammed action does not give you chance for breath. There is not a dull moment. A bittersweet ending sees Mason leave and Goodspeed off with his wife and future child.

We all love that sort of feeling. A story worth telling, a movie worth watching, a feeling worth having.

This film made my childhood along with other Cage action classics. You have to watch this if you haven’t.

Let’s See if She Can…

I’m now pairing up my royal pythons once again after unsuccessfully pairing them at the end of 2020. My female did not get gravid or lay eggs, but I know she started to develop follicles and such.

You can see the female in the above picture. She is an enchi royal python. The reason I want her to breed is so that I can experience and witness the process. I also bought her knowing that she mated successfully before.

I will say this, I know I talked about avoiding breeding and such to stop contributing to the problem of people not caring for animals, but I have intention to keep the offspring and keep a small breeding project. Any surplus of snakes will be sold. The average amount of eggs that royal python lay is between 6 and 8, which is pushing it. I also have room to house them. On a side note, I am hoping my new frogs will arrive next week as the tank is ready for them.

I am only pairing her with my wildtype royal python. Again, simply to see if she will get gravid. She is old enough, has laid before – with previous owner – and is of sufficient weight. I have paired them 2 times in the last week and I believe both resulted in a successful lock, or intercourse.

Let’s hope she can and let’s hope that there are baby snakes sometime later this year. I am pairing slightly later than I hoped, but from research they will breed at any time during the year in captivity. In fact it makes sense to breed now, as that would allow eggs to be laid in spring giving them the best chance of survival.

Peace.

The Ultimate Acceptance

When you're gone

I wonder where

I wonder why

I look into the night sky

at the glistening stars

I wonder who

you may have become

or maybe you just burned up in the sun

the truth is nobody knows how it started

nobody knows how it will end

and humans, among others, accept fate

we are the equals to all beings

and beings equal to us

only in consciousness

striving to find

some kind of meaning

through art and through music

a divine comedy

and the lie of God and the sins of establishment

have established your mind

you can no longer find

peace to the thought

that this is it

and this is all there will ever be.

Vocal

O' most divine divinity
soar from darkness
is the coming
'with you forever'
accepting this one existence
no more pain
unclogging spiritual drain
the trauma
lets fast the faith
drop a coin on grave
'the most beautiful question of all'
why
relevant
examined life
under scrutiny
among immortal beings
our play game fun time
'come see us never once more again'
resting loving heart
I will always remember you
even when the sun sets
and there is abundance of ashes
becoming soil 
spot of the crust
intergalactic space dust
wake up
seize the days
realise that my love for you
is real.
